This workshop will explore the zine’s evolution to date as a compelling contemporary genre. Broken Pencil editor Lindsay Gibb will provide a historical overview of zines and zine culture, highlighting current manifestations of the alternative publishing trend in Canada.  A panel of experienced zine librarians will lead a discussion on strategies for starting and building a zine collection within a library or cultural institution. A variety of perspectives and solutions for zine related issues will be explored such as marketing, preservation and access. Participants will have the opportunity to peruse the OCAD University Library's zine collection to gain a better understanding of this unique publishing genre.
